The dual meet scheduled for Friday night between No. 1 Texas women’s swimming team and No. 2 Stanford was canceled due to the poor air quality in Stanford, Calif.

The conditions for competition at the outdoor Avery Aquatic Center at 4 p.m. caused officials to delay the start time. The meet was eventually canceled and won’t be made up.

The Longhorns instead will travel to Berkeley to take on the fifth-ranked California Golden Bears Saturday. The meet is scheduled for 2 p.m.
